Wow! My last post was in December. I must admit that I've always been torn about the whole blogging thing. I love reading others' blogs, but posting to my own is another matter. I always feel that I should be working towards getting the book finished--and lord knows how easily it is to get distracted--so I've shied away from being a consistent blogger. Also, I feel that whatever it is I have to say about Rahsaan should go in the book. But, my writer friends have encouraged me to blog on a more regular basis. For many reasons--it's a good daily writing practice, it can help build momentum, etc.
I'm still a little torn, but now I have something to share!
Next Friday, August 6th, I'm having a birthday tribute to Rahsaan here in Austin, Texas. It's going to be at a little (and the only) jazz club in town--the Elephant Room. A local group, the Austin Jazz Workshop, will be performing Rah's music, and best of all, Dorthaan will be here! I can hardly believe that it's less than a week away.
So, if you're around Austin and can make it, please come!
